The University Counseling Service (UCS) is an integral part of the Division of Student Life at The University of Iowa. With approximately 30,000 students, including graduates, undergraduates, and professional students, the University is a nationally and internationally recognized academic and research institution. Important resources to the UCS internship program are the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program on campus and the close availability of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). The nearby University Student Health Service, with psychiatric services, also provides an important resource for the internship.
The University of Iowa was the first public university in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis and the first U.S. institution of higher education to accept creative work for advanced degrees in the arts. It had the first law school west of the Mississippi and broadcast the world's first educational television programs. For more information about The University of Iowa, visit the University homepage at http://www.uiowa.edu/.
Iowa City, in Johnson County, is a spirited, upbeat community of about 60,000 people that features the excitement of Big Ten athletics and the performing arts. The main attraction is The University of Iowa with its recognized programs in creative arts, medicine, and space science. The first permanent capitol of the state of Iowa has been restored to its original decor and is used as a University building. Iowa City has several museums, recreational facilities, shopping centers, a variety of light industries, and performing arts theaters.

University Counseling Service
The UCS is the primary mental health agency for students on campus. The UCS serves the remedial, developmental, and preventive needs of the student population through clinical services, outreach and program activities, training, consultation, evaluation, and research. Many of our clients are traditional-age University students with career, academic, developmental, and interpersonal concerns, although older students, couples, and individuals with severe psychopathology are also seen at the UCS. The average client age is 24 years. Approximately 1,600 students receive clinical services from the UCS each year. Approximately 10,000 students are reached yearly through outreach programs and consultations.
The UCS is housed in a spacious, well-appointed facility. Interns are provided with completely furnished individual offices that are located in the heart of the facility. Their offices have video recording equipment. Each of the three offices has a networked Windows computer with Internet access.

The internship is designed to provide the capstone of training for entry-level professional psychological practice. Belar and Perry (1992), in their report on the National Conference on Scientist-Practitioner Education and Training for the Professional Practice of Psychology, stated that the scientist-practitioner model involves the "application of scientific thinking and behavior to problem-solving and hypothesis-testing in practice." (p. 73). We strive to help our trainees implement evidence-based practice. We value attention and responsiveness to data from multiple sources, including published group research and individual consumers. We hope that a commitment to scholarly inquiry will foster lifelong learning.
Because therapy effectiveness appears to be associated with therapist allegiance and treatment coherence (Wampold, 2001), we encourage our trainees to adopt psychological theories that are consistent with their own worldviews. We prompt trainees to identify the conceptual underpinnings on which they base their psychological practice.
An additional overarching aim of the internship is to help interns establish multicultural competence. Our intersecting identities affect our experiences and inform our worldviews. Along with our profession’s collective values, our lived experiences and related assumptions inform our work. We believe that if professional service, training, and research are to be relevant to a broad range of people, we must include people who hold diverse perspectives in the planning and implementation process. As part of interns’ commitment to grow in multicultural knowledge, values, and skill, we require them to engage in exploration of the ways that their identities, experiences, and assumptions inform their work. We strive to training in a manner consistent with APA’s Guidelines on Multicultural Education, Training, Research, Practice, and Organizational Change for psychologists.

The goals of the training programs are as follows:
- Interns will develop assessment and case conceptualization skills.
- Interns will develop and implement effective therapeutic contracts.
- Interns will establish entry-level clinical supervision capability.
- Interns will conduct programming needs assessment and implement programmatic interventions.
- Interns will continue to develop research skills that they have established in their graduate programs.
- Interns will incorporate awareness of and responsiveness to issues of human diversity throughout their professional work.
- Interns will base their professional decisions and behavior on ethical principles.
- Interns will develop a sense of identification with the profession of psychology.

Services Provided by Interns
Supervised experiences provide grist for the mill of all other training components. The largest proportion of time is spent providing clinical services. Interns are assigned ten cases, including individuals and couples. They conduct four initial contact clinical interviews weekly, serving in the role of consultant-on-duty (COD). They co-facilitate a 90-minute therapy group each week. In the Program and Consultation Services area, they provide approximately one hour of psychoeducational programming each week. They establish at least one liaison with a University or community agency. In the Training area, interns provide clinical supervision to a doctoral-level practicum student during spring semester. For administrative experience, interns serve on at least one administrative committee within the UCS.
Each intern selects a yearlong clinical emphasis in which to invest six hours weekly to deepen an area of clinical expertise. The four clinical emphasis options during the 2012-2013 year are the Treatment of Eating Disorders, ACT Therapy, Mindfulness-bases Therapy, and Assessment of LD/ADHD. Every year we assess the value of the clinical emphasis experiences to ensure quality options, so the menu may shift slightly across years.
Eva Shoen, Ph.D. - Eating Disorder Clinical Emphasis
Lanaya Ethington, Ph.D. - Acceptance & Commitment Therapy Clinical Emphasis
Brad Brunick, Psy.D. - Mindfulness-Based Therapies Clinical Emphasis
Helen Brady, Ph.D. - LD/ADHD Clinical Emphasis
Interns work with a senior staff Outreach Mentor on an organizational consultation project. Interns negotiate one of three mentorships. The Outreach Mentors serve to lay groundwork with another campus agency or population, and they supervise the interns' involvement in a substantive consultation and programming effort. The consultation projects incorporate considerations of individual and cultural diversity and/or include a social justice component, and the projects include an outcome evaluation process.
The menu of the available options is influenced by the mentors' assessment of the campus needs and by the mentors' assessment of opportunities for consultation. There are three Outreach Mentorship options for the 2012-2013 class.
Lanaya Ethington, Ph.D. - Office of Student retention
Eva Shoen, Ph.D. - Bridge Program Outreach Mentorship
Brad Brunick, Psy.D. - Cultural Houses
Interns meet with their primary clinical supervisor for two hours weekly. In addition, they meet with their clinical emphasis supervisor for one hour weekly. In the fall, they meet with an intake supervisor for a half-hour each week. In the spring, they add an hour of individual supervision of supervision. Throughout the year, they meet with their group supervisor/co-facilitator for .5 to 1 hour each week. Interns are expected to be active participants in negotiating the goals and process of their supervision. For information about our training staff, please see the University Counseling Service Clinical Staff list.
Interns meet as a group for seminars, which incorporate case conferencing, throughout the year. The task of negotiating productive professional relationships is considered to be an important part of the developmental work of the internship. Interns are expected to contribute positively to the learning environment they create within their peer group.
Brief Therapy Seminar/Case Conference: Interns read about brief dynamic approaches, discuss case conceptualization, and make case presentations which include recording review. (1 hour weekly, fall, spring, and summer)
Evidence-based Practice Seminar: Interns read about empirically supported treatments and related treatment issues. They are introduced to some of the ESTs, at least one of which they are required to implement under individual supervision. (10 hours, fall)
Professional Issues Seminar: Interns meet with the Director of Training to discuss professional issues. Initially, meetings focus on entry issues. Later meetings focus on approaching deadlines and progression through the year, job search considerations, and finally, termination issues are addressed. (approx. twice monthly)
Assessment Seminar: Interns read about initial assessment interviews. They discuss their assessment cases and make case presentations. They gain exposure to the use of personality testing and cultural considerations in case conceptualization. (1 hour weekly, fall)
Outreach and Consultation Seminar: Interns use a group format to discuss issues related to program development, implementation, and evaluation as well as receive supervision for ongoing campus consultations. (6 hours over fall and spring semesters)
Diversity Seminar: Interns are exposed to identity development models and multicultural theory. They present cross-cultural clinical cases. The seminar focuses on privilege and oppression, and on broad aspects of diversity, including gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, social class, religion/spirituality, and disability. (1 hour every other week, fall and spring)
Supervision Seminar: Interns discuss supervision models, techniques, and issues in conjunction with their supervision of practicum students. They review recorded supervision sessions. (1 hour weekly, spring)
- Psychiatric Consultation: Interns join UCS clinical staff in meeting regularly with a psychiatrist from Student Health Services to discuss referrals for medication, diagnostic issues, and continuity of care. (1 hour monthly)
Workshops generally take place between semester breaks. They address topics less directly addressed in semester seminars, orient interns to Iowa laws and procedures (e.g., child and elderly dependent abuse, suicide assessment), or introduce semester service activities (e.g., supervision workshop). Interns also participate in regularly scheduled staff development continuing education activities.
Support of Scholarly Inquiry
The UCS provides resources for research. Three hours of the workweek are allocated for professional development; interns generally use this time to work on the dissertation. Alternatively, interns may propose another project (e.g., drafting an article for publication). Each intern office has a computer with Windows and Microsoft Office Pro package installed. The computers are connected to the Internet and are connected to the UI network. Depending on their research projects, interns are invited to apply to collect dissertation data at the UCS.
Outcome Evaluation Project
Interns are involved in developing an annual outcome evaluation project. Given the cycle of the UCS outcome evaluation process, interns start with the implementation of a project that has been developed prior to their arrival. They collaborate with Eva Schoen, Assistant Director for Research and Evaluation, to roll out the project. They assist her in gathering data, developing mechanisms to store and analyze the collected data, and in responding to any concerns or difficulties with the project. In January, they will work collaboratively to develop plans for data analysis, report writing, and dissemination of the information gathered during the project. During the summer, the interns will participate in an evaluation seminar in which they reflect on their learning experience during the year and plan the next outcome evaluation project to be conducted at the UCS. Readings and discussions will round out the seminar. Throughout this year-long process, interns will learn about and practice the different steps involved in learning outcome assessment at a university counseling center.
While interns function quite autonomously, the curriculum sequence incorporates increasing complexity of tasks and greater independence within each task over the course of the year. The developmental sequencing is incorporated in several ways.
The internship begins with a three-week orientation program. During the first week, interns spend much of their time with the Director of Training, getting acquainted with agency policies and procedures. They gather information relevant to supervision and liaisons. During the second week, the emphasis is on further exposure to the entire training staff and to some closely-related University agencies. During the third week, they participate in workshops.
During the fall semester, interns are paired with consultant-on-duty (COD) "mentors" who provide modeling, consultation, and supervision for the interns' initial assessment interviews. For half of fall semester, mentors work with their assigned mentees for the weekly four-hour clinical consultation shift, in addition to a half-hour weekly supervision time.
Interns provide primary clinical supervision for practicum students during the spring semester. The task of balancing client welfare with responsibility for facilitating growth in the supervisee is a highly complex task. Thus, supervision is introduced after interns are familiar with the UCS.
During the fall semester, the intern is paired with an Outreach Mentor to help facilitate the intern's entry to University organizations. Throughout the remainder of the year, interns develop, deepen, and maintain their programs and projects.
Infusion of Individual and Cultural Diversity
The UCS is committed to recruiting and maintaining a diverse staff in order to provide a rich training environment. We have incorporated a staff diverse in race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, religion and spirituality, age, language, and gender.
To retain diverse staff and promote the development of diverse trainees, the UCS strives to recognize expertise, support projects, honor differences, and provide professional development opportunities. Diverse staff members are sought out for seminar presentations, supervision, clinical referral, and programming on the basis of their professional specializations, which often overlap with personal identities. Staff meetings always provide a designated time for sharing information about campus and community cultural events and special diversity programs. Annual staff retreats include a multicultural sharing, reflection, or educational component. Professional development time each semester is dedicated to sharing cultural knowledge and experience.
The UCS has a long history of working to incorporate multicultural awareness. We have integrated multicultural training within the intern curriculum and have included multicultural competency in the performance criteria for all clinical staff. The clinical forms have been updated to be more inclusive, and our brochures have been translated into several languages. The UCS has offered services in Spanish for over 25 years. We currently offer services in Spanish, German, and Mandarin, in addition to English.
UCS staff members have worked in recent years to develop a physical and emotional work environment that affirms people of color; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered individuals; and people with disabilities, religious diversity, and international ties. We are continuing on our journey of becoming an inclusive and welcoming environment. We have selected artwork to display at the UCS in an effort to communicate inclusion.
- Clinical Roles. In their clinical roles, interns may request case assignments to broaden exposure, competence, or specialization in working with individuals from specific cultural or identity groups. All clinical staff members, including interns, are expected to evaluate the way that identities of the staff members and clients may affect the relationship process.
- Outreach and Consultation. Interns select an Outreach Mentor. With their mentors, they implement organizational consultation projects. Interns are required to identify the individual and cultural diversity issues and social justice issues that influence the groups with whom they work. They identify how those issues affect their consultation work.
- Supervision and Training. In supervision and training, interns have requirements and options for the development of cultural competence and sensitivity. Diversity issues are explicitly incorporated into all seminars, and are a focus for some workshops (e.g., multicultural identity awareness). Diversity Seminar is held every two weeks throughout fall and spring semesters. During the fall, Diversity Seminar focuses on race and ethnicity. During the spring, the focus is broader and attempts to incorporate difference in sexual orientation, class, gender, religion, and disability. Diversity within supervision dyads is discussed within the Supervision Seminar; discussion of difference is encouraged within all supervisory dyads.

Interns are systematically evaluated in all areas in which they work. Interns, in turn, evaluate their supervisors and the training program. This evaluation process, including both written and oral components, takes place every semester. Multicultural competencies and issues are integrated into all aspects of the evaluation process. Two evaluations of intern progress are sent to the student's academic program during the year.
These evaluations are based directly on the competencies and goals identified for our internship training program, which have resulted through several years of refinement on the part of the training staff. They are in compliance with Domain E, Section 4 of the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation of Programs in Professional Psychology. Therefore, if you are enrolled in an academic training program that requests additional training contracts and/or evaluations, these will not be completed by the UCS training staff. Your program may choose to use the data from the UCS evaluations to complete their own forms. You are strongly encouraged to consult with your Director of Clinical Training or the UCS Assistant Director for Training if you have questions about this policy.
Two advisory meetings are held each fall and spring semester during which the intern meets with all supervisors in order to review goals and activities. The supervisory team for each intern provides feedback to the intern and assists in generating methods for reaching the intern's goals.
The most frequent type of first employment setting for UCS internship graduates is the university or college counseling center. Other graduates hold positions in academia, hospital settings, private practice, community mental health centers, or other community agencies.
I feel fortunate to have completed my doctoral internship at the UCS. As an intern, I appreciated the autonomy given to me to spread my wings as a psychologist in training in a warm and supportive environment. A key strength of this internship is the quality of supervision. My supervisors were influential in helping me to integrate my strengths and unique worldview into my work with clients and my professional identity. One of the most rewarding experiences during my internship year was in the area of diversity at both the client and programming and consultation levels. I feel that the support and encouragement I received from the staff helped me to re-engage with my dissertation and successfully defend only months after internship ended. My capstone experience at the UCS helped to provide an excellent training experience that was instrumental in building my confidence to enter the field as a new professional.

My internship year at UCS was truly a formative year for me--both professionally and personally. I gained the knowledge, the skill, and the passion for working in the college counseling center setting. I was fortunate to work with a staff who genuinely cared about their campus, one another, and our training as trainees!"

I can say without any fear of exaggeration that my internship at the UCS far exceeded my expectations for that stage in my clinical training. Having worked at several university counseling centers before and after, I can say that you will not find stronger clinical supervision and genuine support of interns' development. The staff worked hard to match interns with cases that both challenged and engaged us, and I am a better clinical supervisor due to such strong modeling by the psychologists there. Given its location in central Iowa, prior to starting I wasn't sure about the breadth and depth of opportunities to work with diversity. I was wrong to question it. The clinical staff excels in teaching and modeling multicultural competency, and I worked with a wonderfully diverse caseload of clients. I still think they are years ahead of most counseling centers in recognizing the importance of understanding therapists' and clients' intersecting cultural identities. I can't speak highly enough of my internship experience at the UCS, and strongly encourage you to apply."

Interning at Iowa was an excellent experience. Training staff are seriously committed to intern growth and development, especially around clinical practice, professional development, cultural competence, assessment, and consultation/supervision. I really appreciated that trainers “walked the walk” about taking of our own mental health as clinicians, and I found Iowa UCS to be a wonderfully balanced and supportive environment. In addition, the site is highly collegial and welcoming. I remember my internship fondly, and recommend the UCS each year to doctoral students who are in the hunt.

Intern Class of 2007-2008
Training at an APA-accredited site with a strong reputation for being a solid training program was very important to me in my internship search. The training and supervision that I received as an intern at UCS exceeded my expectations. I felt that my interests were supported and my strengths were highlighted, however, I was appropriately challenged and grew tremendously during my internship year. The staff at UCS is committed to training and supervision and I felt that my supervisors were genuinely invested in my growth and self-care. At the conclusion of internship, I felt energized to enter the field and prepared to take the next step professionally. As an early-career professional, there is no doubt that my internship training at UCS was a springboard for my career. I still reflect on learning experiences from that year and continue to value the mentorship I received and relationships that I developed. I feel privileged to have been an intern at UCS and would strongly recommend this training site to prospective interns looking for a high-quality training experience in a university counseling center environment.

Candidates for the 2013-14 internship class who are invited for interviews may choose to interview either on site or over the telephone. We provide the option to interview on site, so that candidates who want to meet our staff members in person and to see our center may do so. We made the on-site interview option available for the first time in January, 2001. Subsequently, our highest ranked group of candidates has always included several people who interviewed over the telephone and several who interviewed on site, in approximately the same proportion of those who visited to those who telephoned.
During the interviews, candidates will be presented with a set of standardized questions. Two members of the search committee will talk with each candidate, either here in a staff office or over the telephone. They will ask about competencies, experiences, and interests. This process will last between 30 and 45 minutes.
For those who opt to interview on site, we will hold group meetings during the morning and formal interviews during the afternoon. Starting at 9 a.m., candidates will meet with the Director of Training, with the training staff, and with current interns. We will also tour the agency. Candidates will then meet for box lunches. During the afternoon, we will meet for standardized interviews on the half-hour. For those waiting for their formal interview appointments, we will provide reading materials and the option to tour our campus.
We will send email invitations for interviews by December 15. Invited candidates will be asked to call us by December 21 to make specific arrangements.
If you wish to visit, we encourage you to use the days that we have dedicated for that purpose. If you have schedule conflicts that preclude your coming on either of those two dates, please contact the Assistant Director of Training, Julie Corkery. She will attempt to schedule an agency tour and a meeting with a member of our training staff.
